The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems. As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium.


whilst i like their futuristic designs, i just don't see it working.

They want your money to help build a utopia (nothing to do with Venus, except it seems to be a useful tag - not even sure if they are referring to the planet or the goddess of carnal love).

No different from numerous religious sects, except they don't involve God in their sales pitch.

That at least is my superficial judgement when looking at the site - if someone can convince me otherwise, I am willing to listen, but will not be easy to persuade.

Creating a utopia is impossible, there will always be evil people and their followers.

Okay sooo, this story is crazy so i'm gonna need you to open your mind.

It all starts as an average day of school until i get to english class. We had to do a play and ours was about aliens. I mimicked and alien voice so well, my classmate thought i was an alien. I just laughed.

Then came art class. We were doing batik's but we were low on wax so the art teacher broke a candle apart and melted it for extra wax. The fumes smelled nice so i kept smelling them till i was completley out of it.

Next thing i know i'm in an alley with a guy whose t-shirt says "I ♥ NY" on it. So i thinks, "Oh, i'm in New York...Holy crap i'm in New York! I tryed to steady myself against the wall, and i went right through it. I stumbled through a wall. Well, i ended up in an abandoned bank that was a hide out for theives. I was in the vault. I looked through the door and saw them coming with their loot to the vault. I realized i could see heat, and through walls. I tried my wall phasing power again and walked through the wall.

Rest of the story, i basically stayed in NY for a few days, learned how to sell contraband, and got some connections and a cell phone. I somehow got back to Ft. Jennings and my life is normal again.
